Implement Web API to return super-sensitive multi-touch coordination,
shape, size and strength.


Steps to reproduce:
Touch on screen with any kind and shape of object (finger, gloves, foot,
pencil, etc.).

Current results:
Currently returns just approximate touch coordination.

Expected results:
Return data of touch coordination, shape, size and strength (strength could
be calculated also to weight). Must works also on multi-touch.

Resources:
Georgia Tech pressure-based sensor
https://plus.google.com/+BinyaminLaukstein/posts/SKykHFaESFe is able to
return all that data.
Current very-basic touch size implement on Android with
MotionEvent.getSize()
